Watch the German Film “Quartet” in the German Canadian Care Home

June 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

German Film Flyer Quartet

Movie Summary: Once-popular opera diva Jean Horton (Maggie Smith) creates a stir with her arrival at Beecham House, a home for retired performers. No one feels the uproar more than Reginald (Tom Courtenay), Jean’s ex-husband, who still stings from her long-ago infidelity. Most of the other Beecham residents are delighted, and try to convince Jean to join them in a performance of “Rigoletto.” Jean, however, knows that she is long past her prime and is reluctant to sully the memory of her once-lovely voice.

The Society offers cultural events for German-speaking seniors and residents, which are conducted in the German language. The community gathers twice a month, on Saturday afternoons at the German-Canadian Care Home. Events feature coffee and cake followed by a film, a speaker or a seasonal sing-along. The public is welcome to attend.

Ongoing donations to help the Society support and finance these events are much appreciated.  If you have any questions regarding this program or are interested in volunteering, please contact the Program Coordinator, Waltraud Custer at 604-713-6562 or outreachprogram@gcch.ca. In addition, the Outreach program includes a book exchange and a poetry club.
